to make the prosecutor feel good certainly. >> reporter: seth cravens' attorney mary ellen attridge has a reputation. she's aggressive and she doesn't care who knows it. frankly, she said, prosecutor roach was just the sort she'd love to beat. but defending seth cravens, reputed town bully, that would not be an easy thing to do. >> so this was a perfect storm of bad facts. the drinking of all parties, the fighting, the location of the blow and then the hit on the back of the head. >> reporter: what defense attorney attridge needed to do was make the jury believe a whole new story of what led to all those undeniable bad facts. >> everybody wants to see every participant in black and white terms. they want the defendant to be demonized and they want the victim to be canonized. and very rarely are either of those things applicable. >> reporter: and as attridge knew, emery was no saint. he'd been arrested in 2004 for assault on another surfer, the year before for throwing a bottle at a man, and more recently, he had had a dui. in fact, the night he encountered the bird rock bandits, he

struck me was not seeing gaga dressed like that, because we're used to that, but how uncomfortable ellen degeneres was being the first presenter after what had happened at the beginning of the show. am i wrong? >> she's a vegan. she's a vegan. she knew what was coming up with gaga. i think that made her uncomfortable too. >> she had already called her to task for that and presented her with a vegan bikini and said if you want to make a statement -- >> that would have been interesting if she war a vegetable bikini. >> kanye and taylor, there was a lot about them outdoing themselves and it was so spontaneous the first time around. >> it happened last night and it surprised us all. it was organic to the night. when you try to plan and how to get back, it is not good. >> it got overhyped. didn't you feel it was like a -- it went on and on and on. her song went on and on and on. >> it was perfect typecasting too. he was dressed all in red, looked like the devil, the language was -- >> can't find a clip. >> we had to bleep him out throughout the whole song. >> it was an amazing number, though.
